Hi Everyone
I'm sorry for last week's hiccough in our book study. A few of us couldn't stay, some hadn't read much, and I had promised to try a zoom hookup and couldn't be there to try to implement it. So! This Sunday looks good, weather wise, for an outside discussion after coffee hour.  We'll discuss chapters 4 - 6.  Hope to see you there.  If you haven't finished the chapters, I think you can still enjoy our conversation, so please do stay.

Re Zoom.  I've had some luck with using Richard's wifi enhancer outside the church.  If we can be outside, I think we'll be in a small enough circle to enable us to hear each other.  If it rains and we're spread out inside I'm somewhat less optimistic.  I'd rather not deal in microphones since we don't have enough for everyone and passing them around is not that conducive to discussion and is iffy in terms of covid.  

I set up a new zoom session for 1130 EST- that may be a little early but you can join any time.  I've also had some luck transmitting a meeting with a cell phone on speaker, so if zoom is unsuccessful and you'd like to try, my cell is 631-398-0875.


 Darcy Stevens is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

This Week at Old South Haven Presbyterian Church

Old South Haven Presbyterian Church
Brookhaven, NY
October 10, 2021

Dear Members and Friends of Old South Haven Church:

Please join us this coming Sunday, October 10, 2021, at 10:30 AM, for a Live and Zoom Church Service.  The details for joining the Zoom service are below.  The Bulletin and Joys and Prayer Concerns are attached. Following worship there will be a book discussion.

See you on Sunday,

Linda
Hello to all Holy Envy readers:

After church on Sunday we will continue the discussion of Holy Envy by Barbara Brown Taylor.  We'll start after a bit of visiting and a cup of coffee, and discuss outside if the weather holds.  If it does not, we'll space ourselves throughout the sanctuary and wear masks.

If you've missed the info about the book, it is this Fall's OSHC book read, and the plan is to discuss a few chapters each week after church on Sundays.  It is, of course, available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble, both electronically and in actual book form.  But it is also available in hardback at Daedalus books for $8, which is a great price.  I've distributed the first batch but if there is further interest I can order some more.  If you haven't had a chance to think about it or haven't started it yet, join us on Sunday and see what you think.   I've been busy (new grandbaby -  Christopher Alan Corral!). and haven't quite finished the 3rd chapter, but this is what I think:  thought-provoking, easy reading, lovely style, spiritually enriching.  I hope you'll join us.

Darcy

Hello to all Holy Envy readers:

After church on Sunday we will discuss the first three chapters of Holy Envy by Barbara Brown Taylor.  We'll start after a bit of visiting and a cup of coffee, and discuss outside if the weather holds.  If it does not, we'll space ourselves throughout the sanctuary and wear masks.

If you've missed the info about the book, it is this Fall's OSHC book read, and the plan is to discuss a few chapters each week after church on Sundays.  It is, of course, available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble, both electronically and in actual book form.  But it is also available in hardback at Daedalus books for $8, which is a great price.  I've distributed the first batch but if there is further interest I can order some more.  If you haven't had a chance to think about it or haven't started it yet, join us on Sunday and see what you think.   I've been busy (new grandbaby -  Christopher Alan Corral!). and haven't quite finished the 3rd chapter, but this is what I think:  thought-provoking, easy reading, lovely style, spiritually enriching.  I hope you'll join us.

Peace & Global Witness Sunday: also see flyer attachment
From Treasurer Richard Thomas:
This coming Sunday was called Peacemaking Sunday until 2016. (It was also, and still is, World Communion Sunday.) Now it is called "Peace & Global Witness Sunday." It is when the Peace & Global Witness special offering is received.
        The Peace & GW offering is one of two special offerings for which part of the offering remains with the local congregation.
        At Old South Haven, the amount remaining with the congregation, 25%, has been used for an award to the winner of the (usually) annual Peacemaking Essay contest. As there were no Peacemaking Essay contests in 2020 or 2021, there will be more than the usual amount available for the award (or awards) next Spring after the Peace & GW offering is received this year.

This Week at Old South Haven Presbyterian Church

Jesus and the Little Child (Jésus et le petit enfant) (1886-1896)
by James Tissot (French, 1836-1902)
Old South Haven Presbyterian Church
September 26, 2021 - 10:30 a.m.
26th Sunday in Ordinary Time



Dear Members and Friends of Old South Haven Church,

Please join us this coming Sunday, September 26, 2021, at 10:30 AM,  for a Zoom and In-Person Church Service.  The Bulletin and Prayer Joys and Concerns are attached.

The details for joining the Zoom service are below.

I am looking forward to seeing you on Sunday!

Hello to OSHC family and friends
 We're going to try a Fall book read:   Holy Envy:  Finding God in the Faith of Others by Barbara Brown Taylor.  She is an Episcopal priest turned religion professor at a small Southern college.   This is a memoir of her teaching years. "...Taylor brought her students to  mosques, synagogues, and Buddhist and Hindu temples.  [She] writes about how teaching the different religions changed her students' understanding of faith - as well as her own...." *     We have read a couple of other books by her in the last 5 or so years.  An Altar in the World was a popular one.  I'm on page 35 of this one and find her style warm and  engaging and easy to read.  I hope you will too.
 Thank you to Claudia for the recommendation.
 The book is available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble but Jeanne found it on  Daedalus - a discounted website-  for $8!  That's half price.   We ordered six and five have "sold" - if you would like one please let me know (darcycorralstevens@gmail.com or 631-398-0875) in the next day or two.  I will put in another order as needed.  The plan is to meet on Sundays after church and a short coffee hour - outside or well spaced in the sanctuary - and to discuss a few chapters each week.  For those who cannot attend in person, we will try to use the enhanced hot spot and see if we can get a separate zoom or phone call to transmit.  We'll start on October 3 to give everyone time to get the book and to get started on it.  
 Please join us!
 Darcy
PS. This book is available at Amazon Kindle (John)
